Péché Mortel (French for "Mortal Sin") is an intensely black and dense beer with very pronounced roasted flavours. Fair trade coffee is infused during the brewing process, intensifying the bitterness of the beer and giving it a powerful coffee taste. Péché mortel is brewed to be savored; we invite you to drink it in moderation.

This stout style, high in alcohol and bitterness in order to favour preservation, was historically brewed to support the long and arduous voyage necessary to export the beer from England to Russia. The word Imperial comes from the fact that the beer was specially brewed for the Russian tsar’s court.

Very chocolate in the aroma. Dark chocolate and coffee taste. Wonderful bitterness that fills the mouth for a long while. Great beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Grosse imperial stout,mais en même temps si délicate.Arômes de noisette grillé, expresso,vanille,du bois aussi.Très onctueuse et souple. un classique! Je dois avouer que la version vieillis un an en fut de bourbon est aussi très bonne voir capiteuse.

Pours a very dark brown color with a brown-tan head. Coffee and griddle grease nose. A bit of roasted pork too. Moderately thick and coating. Muted flavor for an Impy. Ice cream carton, griddle grease, a bit of coffee, and a note of cherry.

Czarny, gęsty, smolisty stout, przepiękny w szkle. W aromacie i smaku ma wszystko. Jest czekoladowy, kawowy, bardzo goryczkowy. Jednocześnie słodki, gęsty i ulepkowo waniliowy. Świetne piwo!

Dr_Fellini (721) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown color with a thin brown head. Aroma is mostly coffee, roasted malts, light chocolate. Flavor is burnt roasted malts, heavy coffee that lingers long into the finish. Lighter in body than anticipated. Overall a very solid imperial stout.

Smells great. The aroma gives off mostly espresso, but has some other cream-like sweetness to balance it out. Looks great too - black with a small ring of tan foam that sticks around for the whole glass. Taste is coffee bitterness but has a slightly sweet aftertaste that belies the balance suggested in the aroma. Very drinkable for 9.5%. Palate is pretty watery, which I believe is it’s only true flaw. Coffee stouts should have their own category in RB; this is a good one.

Au service, on a une belle mousse chocolatée, le jus est d’un noir opaque avec un léger rougeoyant. Au nez, ça se présente bien sexy: café, cacao, caramels,alcool, fruits noirs,bois, je pourrais laisser mon nez dans le verre pendant une heure, quel bonheur !!!..en bouche, pas de mauvaise surprise, c’est énorme, café, cacao, une trés agréable viscosité, c’est assez doux au début, puis ca glisse tout doucement vers le café sérré, les grains grillés, une légère acidité et cette fin de bouche!!!!!!!&# longue, si longue,c’est effrayant... Un magnifique breuvage que ce Péché Mortel, ça vaut bien les flammes de l’enfer !!!!!
